Levy Payments can be made via My Community or directly to our office with Cash or Cheque. Alternatively owners may use the DEFT or BPAY Systems.
Payment can also be made at any Australia Post Office.
The current Strata Act States that "regular contributions are taken to have been duly levied on a lot owner irrespective of whether the levy notice was received"
Your levies must be paid whether or not you receive a notice. Unpaid levies mean you will not be able to vote at meetings. Make sure your current address is on the strata roll so you can receive notices of both levies and meetings. You can pay your levies any time up until a meeting starts, in order to be financial and therefore eligible to vote.
The owners corporation can impose a charge of 10% simple interest for levies not paid within 1 month of their due date. The owners corporation can also take debt recovery action through the local court.
